Lyrics:

Give, give, give, up until you're bored with it Push me in, unlock my eyes again It's 5 AM, the one clear thought I got is you, don't go, yah right Heading north, there's something about a false sunrise How can this be? You never learned to actualize? It's 5 AM, the unclear thoughts I got of you, don't go, yah right Don't wanna be your good man, don't wanna be your main man, don't wanna see you when I see me, let me disappear into the air you're breathing

Lyrics:

All I do, wait for you, everything's here, just the way you left it Green stone, on the piano, you know I hold it, when I'm feeling low Baby you, fragile as an egg, all that I can do, is balance you on a spoon It's all I do, think of you, ain't nothing new, time stands still I'm in your room, echoes of your laugh, lightning on the moon, the shadow in my heart Beats for you

Lyrics:

All my hate, is mummified, Wrapped in gold, protected by, my baby's eyes. Is it too late, to testify? Where would I be, without you by my side? My baby's side, I'm holding on.

Close Your Eyes Denmark Sessions

02:28

Lyrics:

I don't need someone, to bring me back to life The sun breaks into a million pieces of fire Saints are marching, through the storm, but they brought nothing home There is power hiding in the stones, that we threw out to sea There is blood, pushing up through, the crane's neck as she flies Close your eyes, close your eyes, there is love you cannot see Close your eyes, close your eyes, in my heart you'll always be I can understand, why she left it all behind, fix my tie before you leave Mama tiger's eye, I don't want your life, but leave your stripes with me

Come With Me Denmark Sessions
More: Lyrics
04:22

Lyrics:

Tidal wave, I'm bringing it back again Water receding showing you what's always been there I don't care, about naming you anything Words dying off my skin, I'm new again Dragonflies, we're on top of a floating rock What important things are really left to consider Cause I don't care, death lives in everything Lava in your eyes, and now I'm a pile of ashes Come with me, there's nothing left to take, come with me, what I thought I had it's burned away What is love? It's right here, inside you, inside me. Little shoes, staring up at the moon You will never know the way that I feel about you. I don't care, delivering me this pain Just wonder if if the train will ever leave the station

Lyrics:

Love and leave me with some light, Plants in the back, I watered 'em one time Tore the door off the hinge, What better way, to invite you in? Love and leave me feeling blind Never saw the world, til I saw it through your eyes Lost the cherry in June, since that day, I've never felt the blues Fall in.

Song For My Youth Denmark Sessions
More: Lyrics

Lyrics:

Song for my youth, there's beauty in the dirt, smile, half moon, eclipsing all it should Erin's on the cobblestone, she's all I've ever known of truth and love I wanted nothing from her, just to be around a perfect thing A-men, now I'm dreaming of fish and rain and breezes on the sand A-men, how I'm beaming, the less of me the more gets colored in Song for my youth, there's beauty in the hurt, you taught me how to suffer till it was all I understood You're laughing at the table, till you cried and were not able, to show lack You threw down your shield, though unstable, no one cut you in the back A-men, now I'm dreaming of fish and rain and breezes on the sand A-men, how I'm beaming, the less of me the more gets colored in

Strangers Again Denmark Sessions
More: Lyrics
03:53

Lyrics:

Don't look for me here, don't look for me there I'm out on the beat, in between your teeth I'm up in the heat, on the roof where we, decided to leap Don't listen for me, to call your name, my burning heart It bled on your page, you kill me girl, a simmering rage What can ya do? What can you say? Strangers again. Don't wait for a sign, a ladder at night I'm already gone, what remains? This despair, it's out of my range You kill me girl, a devilish rain Then out of the blue, we became, strangers again.

What's There To Ask Her Denmark Sessions
More: Lyrics
04:02

Lyrics:

When she stops smiling, it's time to go Place a mirror, on every door, don't need to ask her When she stops laughing at herself, puts her freedom, somewhere else, what's there to ask her? If I, could rewind, what would I say? Hold the pearl, in the right, it slips away Words kept falling, into plans, the tide kept rising, her moonlit hands, no need to ask her The one who saved you, took your life, gave up the blade, don't act surprised, nothing to ask her If I, could rewind, what would I say? Hold the pearl, in the right, it slips away What a world, what a ride, I love ya babe

Hold It There June

Lyrics:

Tie a ribbon to your hair, remember what it’s like to be free Brought you to the country fair, you held my dreams so plain Held my dreams so plain We were born just fine, ripped away from the light Honey we can bear the fight, reconnect the wires Reconnect the wires Look into my eyes, hold it there When I say I don’t want much, I mean nothing at all I’m gonna burn my uptight, spread the ashes on the sea Spread the ashes on the sea

Louise June
More: Lyrics
03:58

Lyrics:

If I followed love, I wouldn’t know your name I would be with someone else, wishing I were free And all I’m trying to say is do what you please You are not my prisoner Louise Twenty nine years, I’m looking for a clue Something to put my mind at ease I think I’m coming through, I think I’ll sit down For once, I’ll let it come to me And all I’m trying to say, is do what you please Just be kind to yourself Louise When you came to me, you barely had a string Tied or connected to anything Isn’t that the way, no one hears you sing And no one calls upon you Louise Until you’ve had enough, of lying in bed Making movies in your head It’s time to go out, and walk that certain way Show them why they call you Louise And it’s hard to understand, no matter what we try Loneliness will never leave our side

Lyrics:

So far gone is my mind, so far gone is my mind I’m not, the man that you once knew I’ve shot, an arrow through the womb So far gone is the sun, so far gone is the sun I grew, far from your vine We threw, our seeds in space and time So far gone, so far gone So far gone is romance, so far gone is romance I’ve lost, the skin of a woman You’ve lost, the safety of a man

Dorean Marrow

Lyrics:

You only know a charming man, only know a charming man You don’t hear the hammering, you don’t see the wagon off the rails Comes a time when you must re-build, comes a time when you must re-build Morning bends the colors around your shape, I love to see your beauty in this way Dorean, Dorean Been so long since I talked to God, been so long since I talked to God Water rushes down an empty cave, water pushes all the love I gave The man sang his song in my dream, long black hair and crooked teeth And every note he struck I do believe, is everything unsung inside of me

Everything Marrow

Lyrics:

Drill a hole into a tree, out comes the swarm Finding it hard to be, the man I’ve sworn to be Remembering delays, the moment I laid in your concrete sheets We looked into the eye of the morning, everything Everything, everything Walking slowly, through a dream, on the ocean floor Not quite sure, where I am, I’ve felt this before Remembering the day when Sammy, decided to spin my ring We looked into the eye of the morning, everything I believe there is a part of me, untouched and unseen I bite into the rind to redeem, everything

Grey Eyes Marrow
03:44

Lyrics:

Riding waves jumping out of airplanes Spinning down erasing all your memories Lying on my shoulder worried bout your mother Found you head rolling down the alley Spent the day looking for your body Remember how I met you, dancing to the music Grey eyes, grey eyes, feeling blue Sacrificed too many moments Another grain of sand in the ocean You decorate your door, you tell me that it’s always open A part of me is gone, I don’t ask how and I don’t ask why Mining for jewels in the mountains No one in town wants to buy them Time gets you thinking, thinking gets you crying You’re searching for a friend, but you’re too busy trying

Marrow Marrow

Lyrics:

Marrow come, marrow stay, took a stone, and threw it on the lake Woke up early every day, to tell my dreams to her before they slipped away The melody is understood, and it will sing for you, if you think it could Glory be to all that’s good, rock to rock, wood to wood Man it felt like I was dying, when you held me through the night And when my well was drying, you rained down the mountain side Marrow come, marrow stay, I know that there’s nothing I can say I hide the burden from face, so she can smile without carrying my weight

Gone, yah I’ve been gone, I can’t say how long You, you found my child, buried in the sand, of paradise Sad, it’s all been sad, picking through the trash Honey I am rotten, and you’re how it was But we’re painted right, in paradise, in paradise I watch the winter, turn to spring It’s in the simple things So take a moment, and let it die, and rise again In paradise She’s pouring salt, into the ocean And I’m floating home, yah I’m floating home, I said I’m floating home To paradise

Lyrics:

River drove me down, everything I own Everything I’ve polished, everything’s a loan River cooled me down and brought me to you My sweet solace, my unturned stone Baby cut her hair, it fell down to the floor I could not recognize her, hand on the door The sun is sinking low, I see you going out Walking with a shadow, a shadow of a doubt I love you, yes I do, I love you, you know I do When you’re lost in time, honey I’ll be there Floating down the river, throwing you a line

Lyrics:

I break a part my day, into pieces just for you What more can I say, I’d do anything for you There’s nothing that I want, so bad to make me leave I watch the river run, and wind away from me So easy, so easy, it’s so easy, so easy My head isn’t straight, you know it never was But I’m working every day, doing it for us Anything for you, I’d do anything for you Anything for you, I’d do anything for you

Summer Rain Marrow

Lyrics:

Walking through this tired life Heavier than yesterday Pushing flowers out my eyes, waiting on the summer rain You see the children play outside Bursting out a thousand suns Do you know what it feels like, waiting till the summer comes? I’m not a man who lost it all I still got the light in me Not sinking like a cannon ball I’m floating on the endless sea Talking through these tired lines Leave me standing at the gate And let me serve a quiet time, morning birds and summer rain I’m not a man who dropped the ball I’m just a man who can’t relate Still got loving friends to call I just don’t have a lot to say From Hickory Glen to Hickory Lane I’m waiting on the summer rain She’s traveling south for the sugar cane I’m waiting on the summer rain

Slept Through Love Again Oragami Sessions
More: Lyrics

Lyrics:

Slept through love again, not a memory to spend Slept through love again, yah it’s gone While I was sleeping, I couldn’t see a thing Just the television, and a five carrot ring And I know you there, the ghost upstairs Floating through the hall, brushing your hair What’s a man to do when all that he’s got is time? And everyone around him, is lost in right Slept through love again, all four seasons Slept through love again, yah it’s gone While I was sleeping, I couldn’t hear a thing Just the television, and the screen door slam And I know you went out, but I don’t know where I didn’t think to ask, I didn’t think to care What’s a man to do, when he cannot read the signs? And everyone around him, is closing up the blinds I slept through love again, beginning, the middle, the end Slept through love again, you know it’s gone And while I was sleeping, I didn’t feel a thing No tossing no turning, no bad dreams And I know you there, sharing my bed Staring at the ceiling wishing me dead What’s a man to do when he’s lost the will to try? And everyone around him, is turning out the lights Volcano erupted and I’m on fire

Can I call you home, I’m a tired bird I’ve tried everything, can’t get through baby Man must heed the call, man must drag his cross Through the desert plain, nothing he can do about it No I’m not okay, but I’ll be all right, lay your body down with me And surrender tonight You should know the truth, I will always love you Twist around how you please, it’s your dream baby There’s another plan, lies beyond the stars Run across the morning dew, don’t look back lady No it’s not ok, but it will be all right, lay your body down with me And surrender tonight

Lyrics:

Tied to you, tied to nothing Hear the last train coming? Was a woman in a tree Full detachment, how I loved her For who she was, who she wasn’t, uh-huh Don’t think too much about it You never had it Gravity sold, to the highest bidder Now I’m soaring, out of the orbit, uh-huh When you see her body In the bright, bright sunlight Don’t turn away, see her brave again A part of the ten

Full Parade Shed Skin

Lyrics:

The marsh is overflowing, full parade and no one’s watching No colors on my body, you are a piece of nature Banging on a hollow drum Harsh winds are always blowing, full parade and no one’s watching No colors on my body, capsized in the ocean Cuts down to the bone, you are a piece of nature Banging on a hollow drum, the marsh is overflowing Banging on a hollow drum, banging on a hollow drum
